Great Platformer, Difficult but Rewarding

Cactusgod | July 18, 2011 | Review of Super Meat Boy

This is definitely one of the best 2d platformers to have come out in the past few years. The gameplay is extremely challenging, so much so that it harkens me back to my NES days where games punished you and did not hold your hand.

You play as Meat Boy, who is exactly what it sounds like...a little boy made of meat. There are various characters you unlock along the way that you can also use at all times. In order to get 100% completion, you will have to beat what amounts to a "best time" in order to get the best rating for the level. There are also dark alternative to every level, which increases the difficulty of the levels and there are hundreds of levels. Definitely worth the purchase.
